Coventry City will be looking for their first ever win over Yeovil Town when the two sides meet at the Ricoh Arena in League One on Saturday.

Both sides go into the game at the weekend on a run of good form with the Sky Blues looking to extended an impressive unbeaten run in all competitions, and build on their perfect return to the Ricoh, after last Friday's 1-0 win against Gillingham.

City will also look to build on their strong defensive displays, which this season has seen them already rack up four clean sheets.

However it will be a tough test on Saturday, as they are facing a Glovers side who have their own promotion prospects.

After a poor start, losing their first three matches in all competitions, Gary Johnson looks to have turned around the side's fortunes, going on a four-game unbeaten run in SkyBet League One, losing only to Portsmouth in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The two sides have only met twice before, in the 2011/12 season. At Huish Park, the Glovers held City to a 1-1 draw. Cody McDonald opened the scoring for the visitors, with Martin Hinds equalising before half time.

In the return fixture, Yeovil won 1-0, a goal from Paddy Madden just before the break condemning City to defeat. The clash was the last game in charge for then manager Mark Robins, who then departed for Huddersfield Town.
